Literary Locals: October 2009

Happy Halloween!!!

All I have to say is . . . where in the world has the month gone?!?! I cannot believe that it is already time for another Literary Locals. Needless to say, I have had a lot more going on this month than I had ever originally planned and I have another trip that has completely snuck up on me where I leave tomorrow. I have not read as much as I would have liked this past month, even despite the read-a-thon. When I return from New Orleans in a few days, I hope to play a lot of catch-up in both the reading and writing realm. Who knows, I may even decide to participate in yet another read-a-thon!!

In the meantime, please know that I am postponing my personal Literary Local post this month. However, I know that many out there have already posted your's or intend to. If so, post it here and I will post your link and highlights when I get back. And know that next month, I'm hoping to have a double-good highlight of my locals, past and present!!


Have you checked out these other Literary Local highlights?

Laura's Reviews highlights a classic, The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder, that contains many an inspirational word used to commemorate lives lost during the tragedy of 9/11.

Mark over at Random Ramblings from Sunny Southern CA highlights a new mystery based off Hitchcock's classics, Dial H for Hitchcock by by Susan Kandel.

Mary at Books Gardens & Dogs had a giveaway (unfortunately, it is closed at this time, but you will still want to check out the post!) of Michael Landon Jr.'s The Silent Gift.



    I read The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder in October. Thornton Wilder won three pulitzer prizes in his lifetime. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin, the capital of my fair state.

  2. Actually posted one this month.

  3. I missed two months! I need to get my butt in gear! :)
